1998: Liverpool 3-3 Charlton Athletic

Liverpool came from behind twice before taking the lead late on against Charlton Athletic, only to draw 3-3 in an Anfield thriller.

Charlton took the lead through Richard Rufus, but they were pegged back within 10 minutes as Robbie Fowler converted a penalty.

Clive Mendonca restored the Addicks' advantage just after the hour-mark, but Liverpool promptly levelled again through Patrik Berger, and Fowler then put the Reds 3-2 up in the 82nd minute.

The home side's joy was short-lived though as Steve Jones responded a minute later, securing a draw.

Liverpool slipped to fourth with 11 points, remaining three points off the top, while Charlton lay 15th with six points.
